Free Days – Use During Check In

Items that are placed in the book drop after closing in the evening and prior to opening in the morning are considered returned the previous day.  Free days are used to back date the calendar during Check In so that patrons are properly assessed fines.

For example:

  • I have a book due Monday, December 17, 2012.  I put it in the book drop before you open on Tuesday, December 18, 2012.  My item is not overdue.

With this in mind:
